“One night, I sat down, the ideas came in, and it was a most beautiful experience.” – David Lynch, 2001
“The best film of the decade” – Los Angeles Film Critics Society
In David Lynch’s maniacal, notorious thriller, amnesia-suffering Rita (Laura Harring), who barely escapes murder on winding, hilly Mulholland Drive, makes her way down to Hollywood, where she sneaks into the apartment of bright-eyed aspiring actress Betty (Naomi Watts). When the two women encounter each other and try to piece together what happened to Rita, their descent into the freshly warped and hypnotically nightmarish Lynchian rabbit hole ensues. A lethal blue box, an unlucky director named Adam Kesher and a neon-glowing nightclub called Silencio are only the tip of the iceberg in this kinkily off-kilter neo-noir.
Directed by David Lynch. 2001, 147 min, USA. 35mm print.
